EDITORIAL
Sundeep Mishra
Cigarette smoking is the most common preventable cause of death which has led to a search for healthier alternatives to tobacco smoke. Electronic cigarettes are devoid of many harmful constituents found in cigarette smoke and are therefore being positioned as safer alternative to tobacco smoke. The carcinogenic potential may be of lower magnitude compared with cigarette smoke, but it is still there. The use of e-cigarettes, however, is fairly new, so its long-term effects are still unknown. Moreover, they continue to posses the cardiovascular side-effects and are certainly as addicting...

OBJECTIVE: Numerous studies in animals and humans have demonstrated that inflammatory mediators such as tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, interleukin (IL)-6, and IL-8 play a role in cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), which might affect surgical outcomes. Plasma mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), a recently discovered pro-inflammatory agent, is released by cells upon insult. This study aimed to detect changes in plasma mtDNA levels at different time points after infantile CPB and explore its potential association with inflammatory mediators...

OBJECTIVES: The South Asian neighboring countries of India include Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, The Maldives, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Interestingly all these countries possess either a land or a sea border with India and no border among themselves. These countries have historic, cultural, ethnic and genetic links with India. The paper describes the developmental history and current status of cardiac surgery in these countries. METHODS: Thorough search of the printed and electronic materials has been made...

Abdulhalim Jamal Kinsara
Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring is a useful diagnostic tool that still underutilized by community physicians. It is a cost effective, diagnostic and prognostic tool that had been emphasized by the guidelines.

#12
REVIEW
Antonio Grimaldi, Annalisa De Concilio, Luca Marsero, Maxwell Odida
Cachexia is a public health challenge around the Globe but data on prevalence rates in developing countries are very scarce. In sub-Saharan Africa wasting syndrome is mainly related to malaria, HIV infections, tuberculosis and end-stage heart disease and always associated with high-mortality and dismal quality of life regardless of age, urban or rural setting. We report two different cases affected by cardiac cachexia related to end-stage heart disease. The large age gap between patients highlights the current impact of medical services in Uganda ranging from low-resource rural settings to urban areas of the capital city under epidemiologic transition...

BACKGROUND: ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) continues to be a major cause of cardiovascular mortality in Kerala, India. Timely primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is the recommended reperfusion strategy for STEMI. There is limited data on the safety, effectiveness, equity and efficiency of regional primary PCI services in India. METHODS/DESIGN: The primary angioplasty registry of Kerala is a clinician-initiated prospective state-wide longitudinal hospital-based registry of patients undergoing primary PCI for STEMI...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this prospective study was to compare the effect of application of nitroglycerin and verapamil solution (GV) by organ bath technique with other methods of applications and solutions on the free blood flow of LITA. The technique was not described for in situ graft before. METHOD: The patients were randomly assigned to four groups: group I (n_32, GV solution by organ bath technique), group II (n_30, papaverine solution by organ bath technique), group III (n_29, topical GV solution) or group IV (n_29, topical papaverine solution)...

BACKGROUND: Tetralogy of Fallot and absent pulmonary valve (TOF/APV) is associated with significant pulmonary artery dilatation and airway compression. METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of 73 consecutive patients who underwent repair for TOF/APV between January 2005-August 2015. Mean age was 6.4±5.6years (28days-22years). The right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) was reconstructed using varied techniques. Freedom from RVOT gradients and re-operation was studied...

INTRODUCTION: ECMO provides respiratory and circulatory support in critically ill patients. In our study, we report on a single center experience with ECMO and aim to identify the prognostic markers for survival to discharge from hospital. METHODS: A registry was maintained on all patients who underwent ECMO implantation from September 2012 till January 2016 at a single institution. The collected data was analyzed to identify baseline characteristics, outcomes including clinical variables predictive of poor outcome...

OBJECTIVE: Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality all around the world. We evaluated the correlation of Red blood cell Distribution Width (RDW) with the severity of lesion on coronary angiography as assessed by Modified Gensini score (MGS) in CAD patients. METHODS: A total of 576 consecutive patients admitted in Department of Cardiology over a period of one year, who underwent coronary angiography after diagnosis of CAD or presence of angina like chest pain and/or positive treadmill test were enrolled in the study (August 2014-May 2015)...

AIM: Syntax score II (SSII) is a highly predictive scoring system, which is used to improve individualized assessment of patients with complex coronary artery disease and facilitates clinical decision making. Surrogate markers [carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT), epicardial fat tissue (EFT)] are also used for risk assessment, but their relation with SSII is not well established. METHOD: We enrolled 543 consecutive patients, who underwent coronary angiography for stable angina pectoris and acute coronary syndrome, in the study...

BACKGROUND: Myocardial fibrosis occurs in aortic stenosis (AS) as part of the hypertrophic response. It can be detected by LGE, which is associated with an adverse prognosis in the form of increased mortality and morbidity. OBJECTIVES: To assess the prevalence of LGE patterns using cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) in severe AS patients and to study its prognostic significance. METHODS: Patients enrolled into the study from June 2012 to November 2014...

INTRODUCTION: Iron administration especially intravenous iron therapy is associated with improvements in exercise capacity and quality of life in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). Our aim was to assess effect of ferric carboxymaltose (FCM) on hospitalization and mortality outcomes in CHF. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A literature search across PUBMED, Google Scholar and trials database www.clinicaltrials.gov was conducted to search for randomized controlled trials (till August 2016) comparing FCM to placebo in CHF with or without anaemia...
